Alternative-indie Rock Outfit Papastathopulous ,Malaysia
The first single of 2020 from Malaysian band Papastathopulous, “Kenang”, is about the all-too-familiar feelings of loss and remembrance. The frank yet intimate lyrics (written by guitarist Adam Suhaimi) tell the story of how the writer longs for his late grandmother. The 4-minute track is an uplifting, nostalgia-inducing number, anchored by its strong rhythm section, accompanied with big and bright guitar lines, whilst carried by soaring vocals. A taster from a soon to be released full-length project, “Kenang” was recorded, mixed and mastered by seasoned engineer and mainstay of the independent Malaysian music scene, Mokhtarizal.
